For as long as Shelli can remember, she spent her whole life surrounded with art and artists, beginning with her mother, “Ren Evanoff” who, before retirement, was one of the main artists for The National Park Service in Wyoming, who is now an established local artist in Wyoming and Montana.
In Shelli’s twenties she had an internship with renowned artists Anne Coe and Bill Schenck, living and working in an artist colony known as “Boneville” in Apache Junction, Arizona, and “The Rubbersnake Ranch” in Moran, Wyoming, spending 6 months in each area, traveling back and forth between, for the eight years. Both dwellings, Shelli was exposed to many different artists of many different ilks.
Shelli moved to New Jersey where she found her way to an incredible group of women artists, known as “Trashy Women” who created art out of recycled finds and things from the trash. Shelli was an integral part of three successful gallery shows.
Now residing in Oceanside, California she is exploring her love of painting and mixed media.
